I cannot say anything unless I see pictures of the bike. Lots of bikes asking 50k and upwards have always been drab.

sachinwadhwani, I take your words that the bike is in brilliant condition but please post a few pictures for us and answer other queries I put up.

aah now we are talking like a biker, cause anyone who knows an RD will ask what ajay has. especially the sleeved stuff.
the rest of the looks should not matter "much".

No mention of configuration. LT or HT?

No mention of condition of cylinders. What bore size? Or is it Sleeved?

No mention of pistons being ron. Con-rods being run. Bearing being used.

No mention of which ignition system system is the bike running on?

No mention of any other mods done. AND exactly what justifies the 65k pricing.

Do you think RD350 classifieds are meant to be like this?

as ever, a pleasant & warm welcome to a new member.......

while the questions are well put and pertinent, i dont see any of them being part of the marketplace template, (yeah, i know he hasnt followed it perfectly), but why the hostility in your query??

No hostility bro.
Just that template is fine for Any other bike/car out there.
an RD is something else though.

Hope you understand me.

I got a few pictures of the HT (Pics depict it to be an LT) from Sachin:





Silencers are dented.
Original rims are missing. (Alloys seem to be off the Karizma)
Indicators / Crash guard not original.
Rear drum too small to hold the bike.

Sorry guys but if anyone is interested, the pics would help.

What price would you guys suggest for a bike in similar condition? Wanted to know how to differentiate between the HT and LT by looking at the pictures?

whatever the owner quotes, especially since RD are hard to come by and has got this fancy value attached to

One give away is silencer pipes, HT will have a flat and slightly abrupt end compared to LT which has tapered ending to pipes like RX 100 pipes. This is not a sure shot way coz its the cylinder porting that makes a bike HT or LT.
